The Italian lasses were silgnt compared to those suffered by the Austrians. This was due almost entirely to the violence and accuracy of the Italian and allied artillery fire. iJlnder cover^ of this fire, the Infantry was abis to take the enemy's position without much opposition and to dig in at once. The Austrian artillery return has been severe, some shells reaching the plains behind the lines and destroying houses centuries old. Trees one hundred and fifty years old on Mont Melago have been torn up. The attack on Col del Rosso began Sunday morning shortly before noon. The Italians took the height from the third Edelweiss division which flormerly fought -under Emperor Charles. The di-vi,alori suffered severely. Italian airplanes sheltered them with bombs while the Bersaoelieri exacted a heavy toll in hand to hand fighting.
